LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Katina Powell and her lawyers are expected to go before a judge Wednesday morning. 

According to court documents, the owner of Cardinal Kuts - a Louisville barbershop - claims Powell's story caused harm to his business and that her facts just don't add up. 

In the book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules," Powell said she met a friend named "Tink" at the barbershop in 2010. 

Powell claimed "Tink" is the person who proposed she provide dancers to the U of L basketball players.  

She claimed that meeting led to the parties filled with strippers and sex for U of L players and recruits that were detailed in "Breaking Cardinal Rules."

But Donald Patterson, the owner of Cardinal Kuts, said in a lawsuit filed against Powell and her publisher, IBJ Publishing, that the meeting could not have happened at his business 

That's because Cardinal Kuts did not open until three years later in 2013, something that WDRB has confirmed. 

Powell's attorneys have filed a motion to dismiss the case. Oral arguments on both sides are scheduled to take place Wednesday, March 30.
